    I posted a review of Patricia’s book Steps of the Dance:

    “Steps of the Dance” is the story of a race of people called Krindarwee, their spiritual laws led them to live in harmony with nature and one another that is until the invasion by the Nevians. They purported to live in peace with the gentle people of Krindarwee, the truth was something else entirely… for along with the Nevian conquerors came a malevolence referred to as Moloch…This presence represented itself as a benevolent sprit one who would bring happiness…and pleasure. The truth would soon come out. Although equipped with extrasensory powers of the mind the Krindarwee people were treated as outcasts and their powers forbidden by the Nevian overlords.
    Tadessa, the young female protagonist is under fire from all sides, her uncle Jem, an office holder in the Nevian government controlled by Moloch seeks to destroy… kill…eradicate… his family members because Tadessa is prophesied to be the Chosen Daughter promised by Khaadi (The Krindarwee higher power) to be the savior of her people.
    Through all the trials and tribulations including the capture of Tadessa’s mother by the Nevian government, up to the father and daughter reunion this story will keep you glued to the pages… Sleep I don’t think so…
    The heroes and villains will suck you into the story and have you counting the days until the release of the next installment.
